Having problems with your Packard Bell Easy One Silver 2120 Notebook ?

The screen on my packard bell laptop flickers. It is approx 1 year old. This happens if it has been on a while or has just powered up, when plugged in or running on battery regardless of what it is being used for (ie watching films, research etc). The screen flickers black. It will be running as normal then will flick once for a split second or it will do it continuously and eventually stay black. The only way to stop this seams to be lowering the screen so the laptop is almost closed, then re-o


Answers :

Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
